Easy Overnight Crockpot Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe

Disclosure AffiliateEasy Overnight Crockpot Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe

This Easy Overnight Crockpot Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe is seriously one of my favorite recipes of all time.  It isn’t complicated or fancy, but it is awesome to wake up in the morning and have a hot, delicious and healthy breakfast all ready to go!  Steel cut oats are so healthy because they are the whole grain of oats.  They taste a bit “nuttier” than regular oatmeal and have a great substantial, chewy texture.

This recipe tastes great as-is, but is even better with some add-ins to taste.  My hubby likes them just with a bit of brown sugar and milk stirred in.  I like to add raisins and chopped walnuts to mine (along with the brown sugar).  Other days I like to add dried cranberries and almonds.  There are countless combinations of things to you can to make a different breakfast every day!

If you make more than your family can use for one breakfast, it microwaves very well.  Just add some milk and stir several times while heating.

For the best price on steel cut oats, I usually buy them from the bulk bins at our local health food store, at Trader Joe’s or online at Vitacost.

    Easy recipe. I never thought of cooking steel cut (pinhead/scottish/irish) oats in the crock pot overnight. We love this oatmeal and usually have it at least once per week. We found some ‘quick cooking’ steel cut oats from bob’s red mill. They cook in about 7-8 minutes instead of 45 minutes that I usually cook the regular steel cut oats. I like mine with raisins in it. Never tried brown sugar, sound good though. Thanks for the info.

  2. I’m glad you said that leftover oatmeal can be reheated. I don’t usually make extra because I just ended up throwing it out. Thanks for the tip.

  3. I like oatmeal, I think it’s the perfect breakfast, and I like to add fresh fruit to my oatmeal. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    How long do these last in the refrigerator? I’m thinking about making them the week before work and eating the throughout the week. What do you think?

    • Yes, I have done that making it on Sunday night and reheating throughout the week. They still tasted fine on Friday!
